The initial release of a any software product is always very thrilling to its developer – same was true for the launch of Leaflet Maps Marker Pro 10 days ago: have all blocker bugs been fixed? Will it work as designed also on servers with “exotic” configuration? Have 7 beta versions been enough? The short answer: it worked nearly as designed 🙂
Anyway as with every actively maintained plugin, there will be regular updates to Leaflet Maps Marker Pro which introduce new features, fix bugs or optimize the handling of the plugin. I listen to the users of my plugin and try to align the plugin as best as possible with the feature requests and wishes – see the roadmap for a rough plan for future releases; an upgrade to the latest version is always recommended anyway.
Now let´s get to the highlights of pro v1.1:
As the initial release of Leaflet Maps Marker Pro had to be delayed several weeks, I implemented all initial features with the leaflet.js version available at that time: v0.5.1. In the meantime, v0.6.4 had been released with many improvements, bugfixes and optimizations. This version is now integrated in Leaflet Maps Marker Pro v1.1. For the full changelog of leaflet.js, please click here.
If you install Leaflet Maps Marker Pro on a localhost installation (for available packages see Wikipedia), registering for a free 30-day-trial is not mandatory anymore and the plugin can be tested without time limitation (when install the pro plugin on a live domain, registering a free 30-day-trial license key is still mandatory though). Anyway it is still advised to register for a free 30-day-trial license as this enables you to open support tickets via the helpdesk for example.
If you register for a free 30-day-trial license key, you can now not only test the pro plugin on 1 but now on up to 25 live domains.
I added the new option “Beta testing” in Settings / Misc / General settings:
If you enable this option, plugin updates will be retrieved from the beta channel on mapsmarker.com. Please use this option on your own risk, as beta versions of the plugin might be unstable and are not recommended to be used on production sites!
Thanks to many motivated contributors, pro v1.1 comes with the following translation updates:

The following issues are still open and I will do my best to fix them with the next release:

The easiest way to update is to use the WordPress update process: login with an user who has admin privileges, navigate to Dashboard / Updates, select plugins to update and press the button “Update Plugins”.
The pro plugin checks every 12 hours if a new version is available. You can also manually trigger the update check by going to Plugins and clicking on the link “Manually check for updates” next to “Leaflet Maps Marker Pro”:
